plug considerations fwiw
stock/mild cam FR78, BKR6EQUP or FGR7DQP+, mild cam/pulley BKR7EQUP or FGR5KQEO, advanced FGR5KQEO or DOR12LGS

naturally others work, note the above 'all' are fours, best plug style for these motors imo. Cheapest are the BCR8ES (think that's the fella's) that 1320 use, singles, copper, two steps down, affordable to swap bi-annually

form your own opinion on Iridium, personally now I won't touch them, or other NGK plugs generally other than the OEM use EQUP's, that's just me though ;O)

Replacement horn finally fitted Sunday with some decent weather again, nice easy job, and fitted so the horn isn’t facing up to catch any rain water like the previous one was 🙄
Left hand is the old one..

Also, NS Xenon headlight packed up. Went for the cheapest option, replacement bulb (tenner off fleabay after reading comments on here) and still not working. Swapped the box off the back of the bulb with the OS, still nothing, so then swapped the ballast pack. Boom, sorted. So least I’ve tracked down the issue, replacement ordered and a pair of bulbs as back up now

As an aside, does anyone know the thread of the bolts for this as the ones on both headlamp and rusty as hell, thinking of replacing a lot of the bolts on this sort of thing and the bumpers etc

Painted the strut brace as the Ramair sticker had always struck me as naff.. also painted the front edge of the intercooler diverter, to give a flash of blue through the intake now

Hi, I've really enjoyed reading through your posts. Recently brought myself a MCS 2005, 1 owner of pepper white and no mods, im in love with it. I want to do a few of the things you have done. Could I ask what products you used on the gear linkage? Also, have you any updated pics on yours? 😊
